This Business Analytics course from Imperial College Business School - Summer School at Imperial College London will focus on a brief introduction to probability/statistics, decision trees and optimisation and networks with applications in logistics and organisations.
By the end of the course you will:
Understand some basic probability concepts such as distributions, conditional probability etc. and apply them in real life situations.
Build and solve decision trees for modelling strategic real-world problems under uncertainty.
Understand how to formulate various kinds of optimization problems and solve them in Excel and AMPL.
Construct linear regression models for statistical analysis, and estimate them in R.

- Week one
We will review some basic probability (distributions, conditional probability, Bayes Theorem, Central Limit Theorem, etc.). We’ll also learn how to formulate real-world strategic problems under uncertainty as decision trees and how to solve these trees using an Excel Addin.
- Week two
We will learn how to formulate managerial decision problems as linear and discrete optimization problems, what the properties of these optimization problems are, and how these optimization problems can be solved in Excel and AMPL.
- Week three
We will learn about the specification and estimation of the linear regression model, from model assumptions, coefficient estimation to model inference and predictions. Using empirical applications drawn from economics and related fields, we will demonstrate how these approaches can be successfully applied in practice.
